In this house I know that anytime I make a pizza, its guaranteed that it will get eaten. Even if I screw it up, the mantra seems to be that there is no such thing as a bad pie. Only the this is pretty darn good pizza, pass another slice please pizza, the thank you soooo much for making pizza mommy pizza (trust me, dinner compliments from the six and under crowd are a rare treat, so this is the sign of a job well done), and the Get your hand off that last slice, I called dibs and Ill fight ya for it if I have to kickin awesome pizza.
This pizza is of the third distinction. Its a tomato free pizza loaded with chicken, fresh basil and fresh spinach. Trust me, you wont miss the tomatoes. Ive made it twice for my kids now and both times they gobbled it up like it was candy (it could also be that I bribed them with candy if they would eat a piece, but I would never (did I just say never?) do such a thing so well pretend I didnt just type that).
I made my own crust (my recipes here), but you can also use a pre-bought dough or pizza crust and it will still work just perfectly.
